DONATIONS of goodies for an Easter egg hunt will be given to foodbanks and a homeless charity instead.

The fundraising event was to have been staged by Aireborough Rotary Club but was cancelled due to coronavirus.

Now eggs, which were donated by Marks and Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco will be given to local food banks and the Hidden Homeless charity.

The club is also expecting to have to cancel its annual day at Headingley - a tradition which began in 2015.

The spokesman said: “The agreed dates for this year – the first day of the County Championship game v Essex on Sunday, June 28 and the T20 match v Leicestershire on Sunday, July 12 remain only a faint possibility.”

The club is also congratulating members who have taken up volunteering roles with either the NHS or Voluntary Action Leeds. The WhatsApp groups for both Rotary and Inner Wheel continue to operate.
